ABS Filament Guide: Tips for 3D Printing with ABS

What is ABS?

ABS, which stands for Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS), is a thermoplastic material commonly used in injection molding for various products like product enclosures, toys, and other consumer goods. 

ABS, along with PLA, is the most commonly used 3D printer filament. In fact, ABS adapted as one of the earliest filaments to be printed with. This is because it is a common material which is affordable, recyclable and durable.

#2 Enclosure

#3 Bed adhesion

#4 Cooling

Why Print ABS?

You would likely want to print your projects with ABS when you need durability, chemical resistance and temperature resistance. WIth these benefits, ABS is a better material for functional printing projects. 

As compared to PLA, ABS has better properties that can work well on practical conditions. Here are some of the ABS and PLA properties:

 

ABS

PLA

Max. Working Temperature

98°C

52°C

Glass Transition Temperature

105°C

60°C

Density

1.04 g/cm3

1.24g/ cm3

Ultimate Strength

40 MPa

65 MPa

Izod Impact Strength

34 J/m

26 J/m

Ideally, PLA can endure a higher load, as its ultimate strength is at 65 MPa. However, ABS is more durable in other parameters, as it resists impact better, and it has better temperature and chemical resistance. This makes ABS a better material for projects that need durability.

Since ABS has a working temperature higher than PLA, ABS can be a better material for prints that could be exposed to temperatures from 50°C or above.

Density is also a notable difference between PLA and ABS. If a printed part will be printed in both materials, the ABS material will be lighter, yet more durable. This can be useful for printing prototypes (e.g. drone parts, RC vehicles and planes, etc.)

Why Print with ABS: Benefits & Advantages

Extremely Durable

High Temperature Resistance

Strong Electrical Resistance

Tougher & Lighter

When to use ABS Filament?

Despite the difficulty in printing ABS, this material’s advantages provides an advantage with some 3D printed projects.

FAQ about ABS

Most frequent questions and answers
Is ABS Filament toxic?

ABS Filament gives out fumes when being printed, which gives off the chemical Styrene. These fumes give out the unpleasant odor of burning plastic. Having in contact with ABS fumes can cause irritation to the eyes, skin respiratory tracts, as well as dizziness and headaches. 

Before printing with ABS, make sure that your printer is enclosed, and your print environment is well-ventilated. 

Does ABS filament absorb moisture?

3D printer filaments, including ABS filament, are hygroscopic materials, meaning they tend to absorb moisture from the air. 

According to Omnexus, ABS can absorb 0.05% to 1.80% (by weight) of moisture. However, ABS is less sensitive to moisture than other materials, such as Nylon, PVA, and other exotic materials.
